GRADUATION DAY!

I wanted to share a few pictures from this special day!! It's so weird to me that I will have a son in HIGH SCHOOL this fall!! Whoa! Yes, he will still be homeschooled, and from what I heard, it is much more intense than middle school!! But, I'm so thankful for this K-12 program. It really has been a huge blessing for us!

Our ticket to get inside. We ended up not even needing it since it was pretty much first come first serve!

California has the largest amount of students in the CAVA program. I believe the announcer said at least 12,000! Whoa!!

Isaiah is on the left side, second row from the front, 4th person from the left in the long sleeve white shirt.

Here's a better shot of him getting ready to receive his diploma!

I think it was blurry because I started clapping! I almost cried, but got distracted when his friends, and all of my family started SCREAMING for him!

We ended up at Red Robin for lunch. This wasn't my first choice, but the restaurant I thought was going to be nice ended up being just a small taqueria! Goes to show how pictures can be very deceiving! Here's Isaiah with two of his buds, and my daughter also invited one of her friends. I wanted to point out that Isaiah's friend on his left looks like he's upset, but he's really not. He ended up getting sick that morning. I didn't know how bad it was until after lunch. Poor guy!

Here's a picture of the kids with my in-laws. It was such a blessing that they drove down from Nevada to be there for Isaiah.

And one last picture of all the kids!

You did a wonderful job homeschooling your kids. It's not an easy job. I'm currently homeschooling my toddler until she starts kindergarten this fall. And you have five kids to homeschool?? That's really hard work!! Congrats to Isaiah!
